    I am looking for a program that will save me some work by producing a
    simple printable photograph album. All I want the album to show is
    an album with page headers matching my XP folder name, and pages with
    re-sized pics, say four to a page, identified with their XP file
    names. Seems simple enuff.

    Anyone know of such an app?

    Thanks

  2. Yeah It's ........

    [wait for it]

    .......

    PHOTOSHOP.

    See 'automate' and look at Contact Sheet or Photo Gallery

    You might have to stripe and past the folder name into the automate 'menu',
    but hey - it's not that much to ask.

    If I have five sub-folders under a main folder, and each of the five
    sub-folders contains four original jpeg images, can Imagewalker create
    five images (each representing a page) containing four thumbnail type
    images of the original jpegs? Complete with folder/sub-folder names
    and filenames?

    I can't make Imagewalker do it.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I don't know. Did you read the docs?
    I'm not the tech support guy. You asked for a SIMPLE Photo Album
    program.
    Here's an idea. Write to the program's AUTHOR. I be he knows how it
    works.

    I was going to say that too, but wasn't sure that's what he wanted. And
    not sue he has Photoshop.
    There's also Photobucket that can be set up in albums and various ways.
    I'm not really sure what he wants, I was thinking of the Atomate-
    contact sheet option that will set pictures up on a page with the file
    name/number on it, unless the text layers are deleted. It can be set up 4 to
    a page, or any combination depending on how many you want and what size.
    I'm still new to the idea I might actually know an ANSWER to something
    i.e. Photoshop. I've been the one asking the questions for so many years.

    I wasn't sure what he wanted. I think something he can download and put
    photos in that will set it up like he wants? Kodak EasyShare or Picasso or
    something? (and I'm not sure they will do that, but they are programs) Is
    Imagewalker somehing in Photoshop? I'll have to Google it.
    Actually, I bet he could put what he wants in Google (like simple program
    to set up images) and get answers and suggestions. Or "how to set up simple
    album in Imagewalker". I do that a lot (about other things) and find many
    people either asking the same thing (with answers) or links to find answers.
    Of course, with Photoshop questions I ask here LOL
    Someone told me he used Piscasso to make effects on pictures, and it was
    simple and free. I downloaded it to see what it was, and first off it wanted
    to get every imagine on my computer and put them in it's files. (I can't
    even guess how many images I have, and I continually put them on DVDs, and
    take them off, at least ones I don't think I'll want handy). I didn't want
    to do that, and the whole thing seemed so complicaed, I ended up taking it
    out. I can do the same things, probably faster and easier (like a mask,
    lighting or blurring parts of a picture) in PS. (the point there are
    programs one can download and maybe that one would set up pictures like the
    person wanted)

    There's many ways depending upon the OP's idea of saving a lot of work. I
    think I made a quick one of what he wants using MS Word... right click
    properties for each folder's jpg to get the path. Paste both pic and path
    on a Word.doc. Now he's talking thumbnail. Paste pics onto another
    Word.doc and resize the pics to thumbnail size. It's possible to even
    create a link on the thumbnail to the full sized pic on another Word doc.
    You can do the same thing with PowerPoint. You're bordering on building a
    web now. MS FrontPage is like both Word and PowerPoint and creates thumb
    nails from images with one click. If links are made, the paths (file
    locations and file names) need to remain constant for webs to work. See
    this link for an example of web style photo album:
    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/php-photoalbum.htm here's others:
    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/indexb.html Once initially made,
    web albums are easy to update with new images. And webs don't need to be
    published to the Internet, they can run from files on computers (Intranet).

    irfanview ( http://www.irfanview.com/ ), and it's free, has a slide-show
    maker that might be what the OP is looking for. A show can be made from
    photos stored in multiple locations. The option to "show" the full path for
    each photo during show is available. It's also possible to save the entire
    show as a stand-alone.exe

    How often will you want to do this?

    Not sure - not often. I really have many pictures which I want to
    append to a textual .doc. I can manually insert, resize, and position
    the pics one at a time into .doc pages, but that is a lot of work.
    Thanks

    Because it's useful software, numbnuts.
    You're a top posting fuckwit who's offered NO solutions at least I had
    one to offer.
    What's your excuse?

    You're recommending Microsoft Word for image work? Are you retarded?

    Sounds like a lot of work LOL I was trying to think of the program-
    Irfanview that is it. Have seen it recommended.
    Using Word for this means having and understanding Word. I have put
    pictures in it, like with text, setting something up and they sometimes jump
    around, hard to get them in the place you want them (and to stay there)
    I wonder if Publisher would also work. You can set up booklets with
    that, with as many pages as you want. Not sure about thumbnails, though.
    I got the idea he wanted to find a program and download it and have it
    do all the work, for what he wanted.
    And I'm still confused about what that is.

    I'm lost. But, it doesn't take much to confuse me LOL
    It almost sounds like something you'd do with html, etc on a simple
    website.
    If you ever get it set up so you want it as pdf, there's PRIMO which
    converts to pdf (using print, you choose primo insted of your printer). it's
    a free program to download. Aside from that I have no idea.
    I know, I have asked on groups about something and *I* know what I mean,
    but others can't seem to understand it.

    So, you are using Word?
    There used to be usenet groups for the Microsoft programs (Word, Publisher,
    etc) but they were being phased out and other groups used instead. I'm
    wondering if Publisher might be good. You can put text on pages and
    pictures, of various size, and set up pages. But, if you don't know the
    program, you'd have to learn something about it first. You can also download
    primo pdf converter and save the Publisher pages as pdf.
